Italy is located in South-Europe. It incorporates the valley of the Po River, the Apennine Peninsula, the two big islands of the Mediterranean, Sicily and Sardinia; and numerous smaller islands.
Italy was populated in the first millennium B.C. Meanwhile, the northern part of the peninsula was conquered by the Etruscans; the southern part by Greek settlers. Throughout more than 3000 years there were many migration periods and invasions. Finally, Italy was unified in 1870. Beforehand it was divided by dukedoms, republics and the Pope’s state.

In Italy there are different types of climate: mild continental in the Po Valley, cold in the Alps, the Mediterranean in coasts and islands, and finally cool and windy in the Apennines. Because of the considerable length of the peninsula, there is a variation between the climate of the north, attached to the European continent, and that of the south, surrounded by the Mediterranean.
Sometimes cold air from northern Europe can spread south into Italy, bring snow to most mountains, while the coasts are kept warm by the high sea temperatures. The climate for which Italy is famous, with a mild climate and plenty of sunshine tempered by breezes, is actually found only in coastal and plain areas of the center and south, as well as in the coast of Liguria in the north-west. As a rule, the Tyrrhenian coast is warmer and wetter than the Adriatic coast.
The Mediterranean climate in Italy has often local variations. Surrounded by warm seas and with mountains close by, the coast always has a breeze; mountain areas are usually cooler with clear sunny skies, but sometimes local showers or thunderstorms in the afternoon. The coast and valleys tend to have hotter summers than the hills or mountains although the coast benefits from breezes off the sea for cooler temperatures even in those warmer months.
July and August are the hottest and sunniest months, except in the Alpine region. The summer can be quite hot in Italy, mainly in the south of the peninsula, with high nocturnal temperatures of usually 28-33°C, but sometimes even 40°C. Autumn is often rainy, especially from late September or October onwards.
Sardinia is subject to Atlantic winds and Sicily to African winds. In spring and fall, the Sirocco, a warm wind from Africa, raises the temperature of the peninsula.
The summer these Winds can bring very hot, unpleasant weather, sometimes even up to the northern districts of Italy. Occasional short cold spells in winter can bring about the north winds from central Europe.
